Since 1993, we have created the opportunity for over 2,200
children 7 to 18 years of age to perform in amazing venues in
Sacramento, our nation, and abroad. Our goal is to inspire our
children – and our audiences – with a life-long love of music by
performing different types of musical genres and by utilizing
many languages and different eras.
The touring choirs of the SCC (Crescendo, Dolce) have delighted
audiences in China, Sweden, Norway, England, France, the Czech
Republic, Hungary, Pilsen, Kromeriz, Honolulu, New York (Carnegie
Hall), Oregon and Los Angeles as well as the Sacramento Community
Center Theater, the Memorial Auditorium and the Mondavi Center at
University of California at Davis.
New singers will participate in a 6-week workshop to learn basic
musical skills. This sampler is for children with little to
no experience however fun for those looking to learn
more about the Sacramento Children’s Chorus will enjoy this as
well. If you are going into the 2nd through 4th grade, sign
up for the session from 3:30 to 4:00pm starting Tuesday, June
23rd. Singers entering 5 & 6th grades, sign up for the session
4:15 to 4:45pm (POSTPONED). Must have access to
internet and a smart device or computer. Zoom credentials will be
sent to you.
During this difficult time, Sacramento Children’s Chorus went
from a traditional chorus program to providing virtual learning
activities for our choirs. Virtual choir rehearsals re-enforcing
music theory, model singing techniques and provide musical tracks
for singing at home.
Now more than ever, it is important to keep our children
connected to their communities. Singing together can turn
isolation and depression around for a child.

I believe that the Sacramento Children’s Chorus is a powerful
asset to the arts community in Sacramento. It is with great
sadness that I see what this virus/pandemic is doing to not
only SCC organization but all the arts groups in this city
and beyond. I encourage all of us to hang on and hold firm
to our commitment to see SCC continue in our community.
Sacramento Children’s Chorus changes children’s lives. Singing
together engages the body, mind and spirit.
For 27 years, we have served hundreds of children providing
choral music education. We have collected many stories that
illustrate how choir can make an impact on a child.
This is a group of diverse students 7 to 18 years old who meet
weekly to learn music, sing, and perform together. Singing
together turns isolation and depression around for a child.
Singing in our choir creates a community of like-minded children
where they find their own voice and a positive outlet.
